combat is stunning. i was just stunned when secretary panetta said the joint chiefs supported that. i think it is a challenge going forward and the military has to take this slow and they will take it slow. i don't think they can lower physical standards or you end up with problems. what people don't understand is part of the reason having women in combat is so important to females, having the opportunity is leadership positions. you have seen amazing women over the years. and have been awarded silver stars because they are in the middle of a fire fight. this is a great opportunity going forward. tavis: chuck hagel is in line to take that job, will he be? >> i predict he probably will be. i don't think any of us disagree, he probably will be. far and notme this have that happen. tavis: will john brennan get through at cia? i don't want to ask if you are pleased, but how do you read the fact that finally, that is my word, there is at least a conversation about drones. >> i am with you on that, tavis. i think this country needs to debate drones and more about that program. i interviewed

security. it's important to note that secretary panetta has made clear that allowing these sweeping cuts to go into effect would be -- quote -- "devastateing -- devastating in his words and would badly damage the readiness of the united states military. the fact is defense has already taken a huge reduction in future spending. the defense budget has been cut and is slated to be cut by $460 billion over ten years, and that is before sequestration. when this number is added to the defense cuts scheduled to begin on march 1, we are looking at an enormous impact on the -- our national security. now, it's important to recognize that we're not saying that the national debt is not a problem. certainly, when you have a $16.4 trillion debt, that is not sustainable, and the national debt is a security concern in its own right. just last year, in 2012, the federal government spent $223 billion in interest payments alone. that means we're spending more on interest on the national debt each month than we spend in an entire year on naval shipbuilding and the coast guard budget. just think about that.
